Full time, Fixed term, Start Date: 26/07/2021, End Date: 27/01/2022

Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery is a special character state school based in Christchurch’s CBD. We have a fundamental tenet that the child is central in directing his or her own learning so that the enthusiasm and love of learning is retained. Our students value the choice, flexibility and respect that our style of education provides them

Our school has an unrelenting focus on our learners’ passions, interests and needs, resulting in a curriculum that is highly responsive. We believe that the responsibility for learning is a partnership between ākonga, Learning Advisor and parents/ whānau.

We are looking for a Learning Advisor eager to work across all levels of the Y1–3 part of our Y1–13 school, predominantly with New Entrants/ Y1. You will have strengths in working with students on their personal learning goals and independent learning, and the ability to work collaboratively.


All applicants are strongly encouraged to visit the school or to discuss the position with one of our senior leaders, Niki Stephenson. To arrange a visit please email


To apply, please email a copy of your CV and a cover letter outlining your skills in relation to our special character to:

We put our teaching vacancies in Tukutuku Kōrero Education Gazette.


If you are interested in joining our relief team we would love to hear from you.

Our school uses StaffSync to manage their relievers. Please download the StaffSync app  from this website.

After you register, you then request to be a reliever at our school.  From there, our Relief Coordinator will review the details and be in touch.  The school will also need to go through their own personnel checks and processes as part of this.

Please note we are an area school as we have Years 1 to 13 students.  This means if you have been set up in Education Payroll as either a primary or secondary reliever and not an area school reliever we will need to also do this.


If you are interested in casual relieving or short term contracts, please email our SENCO including a cover letter and CV. Paula may then be in contact if any vacancies of this type arise.

Thank you for your interest in vacancies at Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery
